Default overall height of leveled w/35" tires?

Hey guys,
I'm new to the forum since i just bought my truck. I did some searching but no luck so far. here's the problem

I want to level my truck and put some 35's on it, but i park in an underground parkade with a height limitation. My buddy has a 2010 ford f150 with a leveling kit and 35's and he just barely fits in the parkade.

Does anyone have a leveling kit with 35's that could maybe measure the overall height of the vehicle for me? including the little sharkfin antenna too? i'd hate to scrape that off going to park lol.
Or is there a place online where i could find this info out? Also, anyone with pics of an 11 dodge with a level kit and 35's would be great too. I'm thinking i'll go with kmc XD rockstar wheels and nitto trail grappler tires. Not sure what width wheels to get though, or what offsite.

Any help is appreciated!

thx

Even if you get the measurment your looking for , don't trust what the garage states is their height . Your better off checking that for yourself too . We have had a couple members here recently damage their trucks in parking garages .

if you have a sunroof, drive into your garage and measure through the sunroof. that what i did, i have 11" of clearance stock, so when i put on leveling and 35 i should still have 3-4 " if room

nope no sunroof, i could check how much clearance i have at the lowest point in the garage though. the question is how much higher would my truck sit with the leveling kit at the 35's? the truck has 33's stock right, so that'd be 1 extra inch for that i'm guessing, but then how much does the 2.5" leveling kit really add to the overall height of the vehicle?

i just searched this on car and driver, and the height of the new ram is 76" high, my garage is 76" to the top of the door and before buying a new ram i wanted to make sure it would fit, i have a colorado z71 now and my antenna hits going into my garage and am affraid my new ram isn't gonna clear. specailly when there is snow on the ground its gonna make it sit even higher,

def find out before entering the garage and do a measurement before entering or have a friend guide you in

my truck fits in the garage now no problem without any issues. my biggest concern is weather or not it will fit with the level kit and 35's. I guess if it doesn't fit, i'll just order a 6" lift and really go for it. just have to park outside lol
